Like the rest of you, I am right almost all of the time.  But what I've learned 
at cohousing is to present my case once, as persuasively as I can.  If it 
resonates and inspires productive interaction, great.  If it does not, well, I 
tried; time to move on.  The conclusion I've reached is that almost nothing is 
so deeply wrong that it deserves to be blocked, especially when it appeals to 
the large majority of the membership.  My biggest fear of the consensus process 
is not that of bad decisions, but rather that of inaction, inertia, and the 
status quo.
